Help! my mare was bred! what color?

So my mare busted out of her stall, and the stud broke down a fence. About 16 days ago, Im not sure if she's pregnant yet becuase they don't go into heat for 21 days. Im just curious on what colors I might get. I know absolutely nothing about genetics.. My mare is a copper color paint, with hardly any white. Just longer stockings and extra white on her face and throat. The stud is a flat black. He is beautiful and built like my mare. Short and stocky! Any clues on what my odds on color are if she did take?

Has either parent been tested for frame? Given that both are stock breeds, they need to. If both have frame, there is a one in four chance the foal will be born only to die a horrible, painful death within 72 hours unless a vet is there to put them out of their misery.

I know the stud dosnt for sure. He Is solid black. And he has been bred several times in the area, plus he has been tested.

Well if you decide to continue with the pregnancy, the possible colours would be black, chestnut, bay and brown.

Yes, if you call the vet out, he or she can administer a shot to prevent a pregnancy. If you aren't planning on a foal, this may be the best option.

I really wanted to breed her some day, but this kinda happened on accident. I figure if she took, than its fate.

Fate has nothing to do with it. Irresponsibility does not equal fate.

Irresponsibility? Horses get out. It just so happened when my mare was in heat. Iv talked to the vet already. She is utd on everything and according to the vet there is no reason that I shouldnt keep the baby. Im a strong believer in fate and I definitely wouldnt call it irresponsible. Things happen. You can't keep a horse in a bubble.

Have you given any consideration to the vast expense that it takes to bring a foal into the world in the best possible way? Have you even spoken to the vet about what needs to be done now that you have just decided to keep this foal that is the result of two horses just getting together, and not the result of any sort of planning?

Fate is the notion that we have no control of our own destiny. I'm sorry, but that is ridiculous. EVERYTHING you do DECIDES your path in life, and even deciding to just "let it happen" is not fate, it's a decision.

Yeah, and the way you take responsibility for that is by getting her the shot. But I suppose it's already too late for that to work.
